COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Late this year we plan to release a second beer in the Barrel Aged series... a dark, 10% wheat beer. We have been aging a portion of the beer in New American Medium Toast Oak, and a portion in Stainless steel. We will then blend the beers to taste, and bottle condition. The beer will have spent over 6 months aging in the oak and steel at the brewery!

Dark brown / copper color, silky tan lace. Dark molasses & black licorice, tobacco, leather, Belgian candi sugar, oaky, plum. Much in the nose, rest spills over onto the palate. Spices are subdued but not absent. Interesting.

radagast83 (4409) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Split a bottle. Poured a relatively clear, but slightly hazy copper color with a pretty decent sized off-white head. Aroma is some light yeast, vanilla and wood notes round out a lot of the harshness. Dried fruits are in both the flavor and the aroma, some light roast. Very smooth for the largeness of this particular brew.

Bottle at RBSG. From notes. Roasty oak with a good dose of vanilla. Another kickass brew.

RABinCO (1139) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Draft, I think 2012. Pours deep ruddy amber. Thick off white head. Big roasty woody aroma. Hints of fruit. Taste is roast, wood, tons of dark fruits. Bit of a slow burn. Dangerously drinkable for such high boost.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2013
750ml bottle, from Dilly Deli. Bottled 1/2010. Shared at Natifest 2013. Clear amber brown color. Minimal off-white head. Couple bits of lace, nothing sticks. Oak, some bourbon vanilla. Light carbonation, medium-plus body, a bit thin and watery though. Lightly oaky, caramel malts. Light hint of barrel. Just a bit thin, though. Tart taste, light sweet. Dark interesting beer.

drsordr (986) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle at Natifest 2013. Pour very dark cola brown. Nose nutty sweet, but also a little funk, tannin or oak. Taste sweet malt, nut and sugar. Not as spicy or bubble gum ester as I like in a Belgian.

Bottle shared at Natifest. I got brown sugar, oak, sweet malts, and caramel in the aroma. Complex. Very good.
